With no new releases making it into the UK's top ten physical sales, FIFA 21 capitalised on Black Friday discounts to dislodge Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

FIFA 21's discounts actually started the week before, but the 121 per cent sales increase wasn't enough to move Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War from the first place. Last week's sales, however, did just that on the back of a 35 per cent increase.

EA's sports simulation has always been among the most popular ones around, and certainly always the UK's top physical sellers, but it seems like that popularity might cost them a pretty penny. Yes, we're referring to the case with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose agent doubled down on his client's claims .

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War had a 48 per cent drop in sales, which is common for the second week on the market. Nevertheless, it wasn't enough to prevent FIFA 21's onslaught.

As Sony and Microsoft struggle to fill the shelves up with next-gen consoles, Nintendo are capitalising like bosses. As you can see, several of their titles have soared into top 10 thanks to ample Black Friday discounts.
